O - Opportunity

R - Rigor

 

The A.N.C.H.O.R. curriculum allows students a choice of courses based upon their gifts, talents, strengths, needs, and interests. The enrichment opportunities nurture and reward students, providing them with options and alternatives for becoming a lifelong learner.

The curriculum framework is designed by Bristol Tennessee City School teachers using Tennessee State standards. Each course is rigorous, hands-on and provides opportunities for higher order thinking and problem solving skills.      

 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

A.N.C.H.O.R. is divided into two main components: INTERVENTION AND ELECTIVES.

ELECTIVES: Students enrolled in elective classes will be able to choose multiple courses throughout the school year. Electives will be taught daily for a 30 minute block. Elective courses offer each student opportunities to explore new areas of interest or to study a particular area in depth. Electives may also provide avenues to tailor a child’s specific needs. In the elective portion of the curriculum, courses are offered in the following areas: language arts, social studies, math, science, computer studies, health, physical education, foreign language, visual arts, performing arts, and media.

Most of the elective courses are appropriate for any student willing to learn and be exposed to new situations. These courses are highly motivational and give students the opportunity to study selected subjects.

 

INTERVENTION: When a child is not meeting grade level expectations, additional time for direct instruction is needed. This process is called Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTI) and is required by the Tennessee Department of Education. Students who fall below grade level proficiency in reading and/or math are required to receive additional time in direct instruction in those courses. If your child received Corrective Reading or another RTI class last year, he/she will begin in intervention this year. In addition, we will use STAR screening to determine any other student who may qualify for additional instructional time. Once the STAR screening is complete, intervention letters will be sent home with more detailed information. Students in intervention are arranged in small groups in order to provide intensive instruction to progress your child to meet grade level expectations. Students who raise their performance level will transition into elective courses, therefore, all students should complete elective course selections.

 

Directions to Select Elective Courses (TURN IN FORMS BY AUGUST 20th)

When selecting elective courses, find the student's grade level section and prioritize each course on a number scale (1 being first preference). There are limited numbers of seats per course; however each course will be offered every 9 weeks. If students do not receive their top elective choices during the first or second 9 weeks, they will have the opportunity during the third and fourth 9 weeks to take the course. Upper grade students will have priority of course selections over the lower grade students. Anchor classes are scheduled to begin on September 8th. You will receive a copy of your child’s first Anchor class prior to that date.
